Born & Birth stories





Your baby's crown-to-rump length is approximately 10 inches and the total length of your growing baby is around 15.75 inches. Your baby weighs about 2.4 pounds at this point. Your uterus is a little more than 3 inches above your bellybutton. Your weight gain at this time should be between 17 and 24 pounds.


Blood vessel in the umbilical cord. For several months, the umbilical cord has been the baby's lifeline to the mother. Nourishment is transferred from the mother's blood, through the placenta, and into the umbilical cord to the baby. If the mother ingests any toxic substances, such as drugs or alcohol, the baby receives these as well!

You will probably begin visiting your caregiver once every two weeks. Week 28 is an important week for testing. You will probably be having your glucose tolerance test, an iron level test and if you are Rh negative, you should have an antibody test. The antibody test will determine if you and your baby will have any reactions to each other's blood differences. The glucose test will check for gestational diabetes.

Your baby's brain continues to develop and is now forming the folds and grooves of a fully developed brain. The amount of tissues within the brain also continues to increase in large amounts. The hair that covers your baby's scalp is also getting longer. Your baby is now large enough for presentation to be determined and your doctor might be able to find out if your baby is at risk for being breech. If your baby is breech, don't panic. There is still time for the baby to rotate.

That's great news lissie. Juliemom I don't think I could run that far when I'm not pregnant. I really wish I enjoyed exercising more but honestly I don't!

lissie**** - 1 days ago
Thank you Juliesmom! :) I still haven't walked yet :/ But I look forward to it. Just been having too many BH and painful contractions etc.

lissie**** - 1 days ago
Hello Aby! Hope your pregnancy is going well. Good to hear from another person in our group :)

aby - 1 days ago
Hi ya'll,how's ever1 doing,ya'll comment really keeps me going happy to join happy pple let's get it rolling

Juliemom24 - 3 days ago
YAY Lissie! So glad that your ultrasound went well. What a relief that the baby is doing great and the previa is gone!!! Exercising is just starting to get harder, as it should be I guess with a big belly. I went jogging yesterday and could only make it a mile and a half. Baby was so low it hurt. Thank goodness we have less than three more months.

lissie**** - 4 days ago
I plan to start exercising again!! Even if at this point that means slowly walking ha ha!

lissie**** - 4 days ago
Our ultrasound showed that baby's heart is perfect! And my previa has moved up quite a bit! Now 5cm from cervix and safe! They couldn't believe my good results and had to look at my earlier ultrasounds to see if they had made mistake early on--but they didn't and were just surprised how well things had cleared up for baby and I!!!!

lissie**** - 4 days ago
I've gained about the same ish. 21 from the dr accounts. I had lost 10 before being weighed by dr but I guess it's fair since I had recently gained a few-- technically I've gained a net of 13.5? But I'm up about 21 from the weight I was at for a long time and had only just gained 7 pounds just before i got prego. I don't think I made any sense typing that ha ha!

letroise11 - 5 days ago
Juilemom unfortunately when I was pregnant with my son I gained 50 pounds, then I wasn't able to breast feed him so I kept that weight until I got pregnant this time and I guess it boosted my metabolism. Hopefully that won't be your case.

Juliemom24 - 5 days ago
Letroise, that is no fun. I don't understand why people have to be mean. Sorry:( Hope today is better. I just weighed myself yesterday and I've gained 20 lbs so far. How is everyone else doing? I gained 55 with dd but I can't imagine gaining another 35 lbs in the next 13 weeks. That would be torture!

letroise11 - 6 days ago
Had to deal with most difficult customers today. I can't understand how people can be so rude. My poor HR ended in the office crying due to her customer. Somedays I wish I was a hermit and didn't have to come into contact with people at all😩😩😩😩

letroise11 - 7 days ago
Agreed! But this is really going by fast to me! Halloween is just around the corner than a new baby

lissie**** - 7 days ago
Wow 28 weeks. I think I will feel even more shocked when it says 30 weeks.

ASergeantsWife - 30 days ago
28 weeks in a have been put on restriction :(. No lifting over 20 pounds, no stairs and as little walking as possible. BLAH!!!! Maleiya is doing well just trying to make her appearance to early. Anyway restriction had seemed to help and the contractions quite a bit less frequent though the pressure is still great.So I have used my time to make her some things, a light pink sweater, bonnet and bootie set, and alternating between a chevron afghan and a Monogrammed Blanket for her crib. Thankfully the other three babies, Si, Jax and Ava (3,2 and 1) are content to be in the same room with me and play.:) Other than that things are going well, blood pressure is good measurements are good and I have gained 8 pounds and lost 12!Heartburn and Insomnia are bad but controlled so no real complaints.

Passed the three hour which is good cause I had gestational diabetes with my first baby. Rib is out though and hurts a lot

jojo - 37 days ago
Ah that's good to know.. I know from what I've read that she has until at least 36wks to move so plenty of time just wondered if you guys knew.. bonita sorry to hear you have to have the 3hr test.. I'm sure you'll pass it tho.. not heard from matoks but then the weeks seem quiet in general xx

jojo09 1 pink 1 blue - 37 days ago
Hello girls...Jojo my baba is lying sideways too - head and feet under my right ribs bum on the left. Am not too worried about her position, like Bonita said still some turning time available. Defo keep an eye on ur spotting, fingers crossed u wont get anymore but a further scan to check on ur fibroid sounds good - at least they r monitoring it for u chick :o) Havent heard from Matoks for a few weeks, hopefully shes around safe and sound? Xx

bonitadiane - 37 days ago
Hello ladies... I did get my results. And I failed. Boooo. Not but much but enough to have me do the 3 hour test. Auuurrgh. Seriously hoping I pass the 3 hour!!!!! JoJo ... I'm guessing my lil bean is sideways too as I tend to feel his feet/hands on my sides. I think we are still ok? I think it's not till 30-32 weeks they flip head down? I think. Lol Twinny so happy you had this week off, hope your enjoying yourself!!! Vacation time is always soo treasured. JoJo hope the spotting has stopped. And hope you can get an ultrasound to confirm all is well with fibroid too. Ladies has anyone heard from Matoks?? Wondering how she's doing?

jojo - 38 days ago
Does anyone else know what position baby is lying atm??? My little one is staying transverse/oblique (sideways) reason I ask is by now on all my previous pregnancies my babies have been head down.. I know she still has a few weeks, just wondered xx

jojo - 38 days ago
Morning girls.. midwife told me to keep an eye on it and if I'm at all concerned about me or baby or if the spotting turns heavier to go straight to the main hospital. . She did also ring the hosp and asked for me to be referred to a consultant to get a scan in case it's related to my fibroid so waiting now to see what they say...

jojo09 1 pink 1 blue - 38 days ago
Good morning girls. 29wks for me today woohoo :o) Love how quickly it seems to be going! Hope ur all well this morning xx

jojo09 1 pink 1 blue - 38 days ago
Excellent news on the pram Jojo, I love ebay sometimes the bargains r fab! I dont know what to do,whether to invest in another one or wait it out for a buggy style when shes abit older. Hmm. Welcome back Bonita! Good to hear u had a fab time! Hope the heat wasnt too bad but sounds like u enjoyed ur break so thats brill! I'm in my second week off, back to work monday for 9wks...where has the time gone!! Its lovely sharing updates with u girls, having someone going thru the same is awesome. Lets hope the rest of all our journeys r none bumpy plesant rides! Bonita did u manage to get ur GD results? And Jojo, what did the midwife say about ur spotting? Is everything ok? Xxx.

jojo - 38 days ago
Well hello haha we missed you bonita.. glad you had such an awesome break with your family hun :-) did you have any luck getting your results? ?

bonitadiane - 38 days ago
Hello lovely ladies... I'm back but not on track. I'm exhausted!!! It always hurts to return to norm after vacation but it's that much worse when preggers. Blaaaahhhh. Vacation was sooooo relaxing and nice. It was so wonderful to spend a week at the cottage with family. So perfect. Sad to be back to be honest. I felt great and slept awesome. I swear my body makes boys waaaayyyy better then girls.lol I had an OB app. Yesterday that was to tell me results to GD. But unfortunately there was an accident on highway and I was going to be super late so canceled. I did ask nurse for results and she stated they hadn't received it from lab yet. I'm soooo upset bc this lab always does this. This morning I'm going to call and freaaaaak out!!! Well ladies just wanted to check in... See how your all doing. Can't believe I'm 29 weeks today. Wow.

jojo - 39 days ago
We found the same twinny and like you I got shot of everything before the move as I wasn't planning anymore lol we've bought the silver cross surf but there was no way I could afford £800 esp when this little lady is most definitely our last, so we decided to look at second hand ones. . We've spent weeks on Ebay waiting for the right one and I'm so glad we did.. it looked in fab condition when we went to see it but once I got it home and stripped it down washed it etc.. it looks brand new. No one would know the difference. I'm so pleased with it :-) we had the pushchair, car seat, isofix base and all the bits raincovers for pram and car seat, footmuff, newborn inserts etc.. and paid £180, it's 10mths old.. absolute bargain lol got MW today, had a little more spotting so will mention it.. am too loving these movements.. they are amazing xxx

jojo09 1 pink 1 blue - 39 days ago
Aww fantastic Jo! Bet ur delighted :o) I havent even looked at prams, I sold mine last year when we decided we werent having anymore kids haha cost us £600 aswell! Typical. How r u doing? I'm loving all these little ressuring movements, thry keeping me going at the moment! Xx

jojo - 39 days ago
I'VE BOUGHT MY PRAM!!! Yaay finally lol so exciting.. it's currently staring at me in my living room. . How mad is it to think in around 12-14wks there'll be a new baby girl in there :-) :-) :-)

jojo - 39 days ago
Fantastic news hun.. definitely yay you :) xx

jojo09 1 pink 1 blue - 39 days ago
NOT! Yey me xxx

jojo09 1 pink 1 blue - 40 days ago

jojo09 1 pink 1 blue - 40 days ago
Sorry i've been abit quite girls, hope everyone is doing well. I have my diabetes test tomorrow, hoping I havent got it but still feel nervous about it. Hated it last time my fingers where like cardboard at the end of my pregnancy haha xx

jojo - 44 days ago
Good luck with your scan twinny can't wait to hear all about it later xx

jojo09 1 pink 1 blue - 45 days ago

afshanm07 - 48 days ago
@snooks i got tested 3 times for gestional diabetes i faild once passed twice

Blondeabby - 51 days ago
Oh snooks..I am so sorry. I just did my test today. I am scared but I just think everything could be worse:)

snooks - 51 days ago
Devastated. Gestational Diabetic again. I managed on diet without requiring insulin last time. It takes a lot of focus, meal planning and ignoring that most carbs and high glucose index foods exist. Trying to find the gumption to enjoy the challenge but at the moment...I'm just really, really sad. The weekly appointments with paid parking and babysitting hastle also suck. So sad and angry. I sure hope I can avoid injections as I'm already two Lovenox shots per day.

afshanm07 - 51 days ago
28 weeks

Blondeabby - 55 days ago
Happy 3rd Tri!! Feeling huge! And everyone is telling me too:( We found a house! Sold one of our homes. Offers are taken on the other on Tuesday. Fingerscrossed it will sell it ASAP. Need to start packing next week:) I stayed up till 2am steam cleaning the lower level carpet for the open house today. Came home and had a few dots of red blood on my panties?? Never had happened before:( Need to take it easier:)

glowingwith2 - 59 days ago
28 weeks!! I can tell my 3rd trimester fatigue is already setting in. I'm also not sleeping as well as I was. I've been getting a twitching in my foot the last 5 nights. I was reading it is likely RLS. Its been keeping me awake because my foot wont stop twitching. From what I read it says stretching will help. I tried last night and it seemed to keep the twitching down to a minimum. I've lowered my caffeine intake today to see if that helps too. Now I am just super tired! Ughhhh.... Hi 3rd trimester!!!

iiloveyouu002 - 61 days ago
Failed Both glucose screening test :( sucks.. Baby is still in breech position, but Placenta has moved and placenta previa is resolved.. Heading into 29 weeks tomorrow WHOOP WHOOP :)

mammaramirez - 66 days ago
Nothing entirely new to update on... Pregnancy is trucking along nicely... baby's movements have definitely gotten a lot stronger... somewhat uncomfortable feeling at times :) I get a follow up ultrasound at 32 & 1/2 weeks :)

mammaramirez - 67 days ago
28 weeks (7 months!!) 12 more weeks to go! My little bambino has been head down since 18 weeks (my last ultrasound) so far as I know... I'll find out August 9th if he's still that way (which I hope he is!!!)

monica28 - 68 days ago
MOMIIB:how did you know he was head down for 10 weeks already? I was trying to figure out at what point in the pregnancy does the baby go into a head down position.

msjenn727 - 70 days ago
Hello 28 weeks! We're getting closer ladies!!

MOMIIB - 73 days ago
Thanks leanbean! Glad to hear that your appt went well :-). Last day in week28, off to 29wks tomorrow. Appt friday with hematologist to adress my low iron, hopefully we can come up with a game plan asap.

leanbean - 74 days ago
Had my apt. yesterday and Letti's measuring right on with a h/b of 134. She has been SO active lately! My belly looks crazy! I also had my glucose test yesterday and luckily I didn't get as sick as I normally do so that was nice. MOMII~ Sounds like things are pretty stressful. I hope it all works out perfectly and smoothly for you!

MOMIIB - 75 days ago
Thanks for asking loriandrichi! The scan went ok :-) what should have been a 15min scan took 1hr bc he wouldn't cooperate! We finally got some decent pics but that was after they lifted and jiggled and messed with my belly! Soo much that they caused him to flip to breech :-( he had been head down for 10+wks already too :-/ but last bight I had alot of pain and his movements are more his norm....he just his usual active self while he was breech. Next Wednesday I have another appt and I will see if he can tell if he is back head down, though I am pretty sure he is right now. I did have an ob appt in Friday which went well :-) I am still measuring ahead, But he thinks thats just MY norm since I have been for a while now and I did the same with my first son. I am very anxious to meet him but I know he still needs to bake! We are also in the middle of selling/looking for a house. Our home had an offer but its a contingency meaning she has up until the 21st to back out but if all goes well then we will give the keys 8days later on the 28th. It rushes us to pack and move out but we are selling alot. We will then be pressed to get a house. We plan to look this weekend but we really cant put an offer til we find out for sure yes/no on the 21st. Ugh, just pray for us or send good vibes....anything, there is just sooooo much on our plate. So much unknown and much left to do! How is your pregnancy going? Everyone is pretty quiet, hope you all are well and just busy getting ready for baby! :-)

loriandrichie - 76 days ago
Mom-how was the scan?

MOMIIB - 79 days ago
28 weeks today, yay! Getting closer and closer :-) 3d/4d scan set for this Saturday! :-)

mommy97101114 - 95 days ago
Ok, so I will be 28 weeks tomorrow! Yay!! Just curious as to what you guys think of the name Keller (Helen Keller's last name...she is one of my most favorite people in history!) But I have also come up with these other names using Keller...they are Kelson, Keldon, Kelton, or Kellian (prounouced Kellen)...just curious as to what you ladies think...I have been trying to come up with a boy name for months. I love the idea of calling him Kell for short...it's different and I haven't really ever heard any boys with these names. I want something unique. The middle names I am tossing up in the air to go with one of these names are Mason, Chase, Levi, Logan, and Tayden.
